Serving as a directory to other Games Finder Legends of Idleon builds and Idleon guide pages this article also detailed the specific considerations to creating your own character builds for your specific objectives that change as you advance through the various worlds and mechanics. It’s also intended to serve as an alternative to Idleon Companion which was a highly active and regularly updated source of game information during the early days of Idleon although is no longer updated for new mechanics.
Idleon Builds Directory
The below is a directory of all our class builds and other guides that go into specific detail on each class and their specialised skill arranged by their main class stat. Each class guide also covers that class specific skill that they specialise in. For information on general guiding principles of designing your own Legends of Idleon best build refer to the end of this article.
|Blood Berserker/Cooking||Siege Breaker*||Bubonic Conjuror/Lab|
|Divine Knight*||Beast Master/Breeding||Elemental Sorcerer*|
*These classes are currently not fully implemented in Idleon, while you can advance to these elite classes you will only be able to access a small number of basic talents at this stage that are shared with their other elite class (e.g. Blood Berserker and Divine Knight have the same talents).

Idleon Builds For Classes & Skills Overview
While it can be good to have references like our above guides to direct your Idleon builds and serve as a beginner guide the better situation is to be able to understand the basic mechanics of Idleon to be able to adjust the builds to your own game account specifics and current goals. This is important as early on you’ll simply not have enough talent points to maximise all the important talents and need to regularly make decisions where to spend them to maximise your gains.
The absolute perfect min-max place to invest your talents points is also a constantly shifting benchmark as you factor in the likes of your character level, alchemy, equipment, cards and other account specifics. While some dedicated players may seek to calculate this the vast majority of Idleon players will be able to follow some general principles in designing their build that are discussed below.
In Idleon your character talent build will broadly fall into three categories and you’ll want to use the two talent presets that are available (unlocked at character level 30) to be able to quickly switch between your current focuses as necessary. Don’t forget that a build goes beyond talent points alone and if you plan to truly optimise your gains you need to change things like your equipment, food, cards, card sets, star signs, alchemy bubble and prayers.
These broad categories of builds are below and will vary based on specific objectives for the character at a point in time:
Skilling Idleon Builds
Skilling builds are focused on maximising your skilling gains (Idleon efficiency) which primarily come in the form of resources like ore, wood or bugs and experience in that specific skill. These don’t always go together though and sometimes you might want to maximise efficiency for resource gain at the cost of experience and vice versa depending on what you need for your goals.
While each skill is different each class has Idleon talents that can boost their AFK gains in specialised skills that are always a priority and closely followed by efficiency or experience boosts depending on your goals. While early on in your Idleon adventure you will often want a balance of efficiency and experience (as experience gained means more levels for better skilling equipment and talent points) there are situations later where you actually don’t want or care about experience gain and simply want to maximise resources. The most obvious example of this is the W3 printer mechanic where resource gains are able to be snapshotted and printed from a machine without a character assigned to gather the resources.
AFK Idleon Builds
Your primary fighting build for fighting monsters while AFK, the focus of these builds leans heavily towards optimising damage for more kills and drops. The first step of this process is ensuring you have 100% accuracy for the mob you are intending to fight. If you can’t reach at least 95% return to a previous map and follow our accuracy guide linked above to obtain additional accuracy sources first. From here similar to skilling you’ll want to maximise AFK fighting gains which each class offers in some form.
From here on maximising your AFK gains gets more complex and based on your own account specifics of progression but generally you’ll want to obtain at least 1 point in your attacking talents (these have a pointed top left corner) and assign them to your attack bar. From here you can add extra points slowly and see the benefits to your AFK kills in the AFK Info screen. Early game you will likely need around 25-50 points while later game you actually need less as attack talent points as your damage simply outscales most caps that maps have on kills.
Following this you’ll want to invest in talents that impact weapon power, the main stat for your class and then utility talents such as drop chance, health/mana or speed.
Active Idleon Builds
An alterative fighting build for when you intend to play your character actively for things like farming crystal monsters or maximising experience gained thanks to active fighting modifiers.
In Idleon this means using the Auto feature while keeping the game open which means this is commonly used by computer players compared to those on mobile phones. Players should either regularly check on the game or consider purchasing the auto-loot mechanic ($5) to prevent the game lagging and potentially crashing due to the amount of loot that accumulates on the ground though. Note that coins on the ground disappear after 20 minutes and other loot drops after an 1 hour.
Popular active classes are currently:
- Hunter: For their high damage, fast killing skills and Uwu Rawrrr respawn talent.
- Maestro: For their drop rate and crystal talents that make them ideal for farming rare drops, post office pens and crystal cards.
- Bubonic Conjuror: For their Raise Dead talent and massive area of effect abilities that make them kill mobs to acquire experience and drops at a rapid pace.
